  • Hi Kelsey!

    I’ve just been reading through your blog, it makes me really miss Maui! My husband and I visit every year, sometimes multiple times a year so we’ve decided we should just make the move from BC, Canada to Maui this year 🙂 I’m and RN, I thought I read somewhere that you were as well so I was hoping to get any advice you could offer on apply for jobs there.

    Cheers!

    Laura

    • Aloha, Laura! Great news about the move. I’m sure y’all will love it here. Everyone does! I’m no RN (blogging and bartending are my money-makin’ skills), but my best advice is to be persistent and patient. I don’t know much about that line of work on Maui, but I wish you the best of luck in your search! Cheers, madam, and happy moving!
